The Buckeyes Visiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital Is The Best Thing You’ll See Today

Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes had the opportunity to spread some major holiday cheer, and they did not disappoint.

Coach Meyer, alongside nine of his Buckeyes, took a break from prepping for the Cotton Bowl to volunteer their time at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The team was there to help patients at the hospital pick out Christmas presents, paid for by the Shelley and Urban Meyer Family Foundation, with a little help from Kroger.

“Every player wanted to come down here,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “There wasn’t just enough room for everybody.”

Meyer has long appreciated the community in Columbus, created by its citizens and Buckeye fans alike.

“I learned this in ’86-87 when I was here (as an OSU graduate assistant). Central Ohio is the most compassionate area I’ve ever lived in,” said Meyer. “To be able to give back and come down here and be with these families and these young people, it’s a dream come true.”

Joinin Meyer to spread the cheer was quarterback Dwayne Haskins, running backs J.K. Dobbins and Demario McCall, defensive ends Nick Bosa and Chase Young, defensive tackle Robert Landers, linebackers Tuf Borland and Malik Harrison and cornerback Jeffrey Okudah.

These guys aren’t just winning on the field. They’re winning at life.
